how to make config and locale files

My idea is to make the config and language files in the following format:

option = "some value"
second = "something else"

I need to make a package, which perform this:

my %config = ();
$config = ( option => "some value",
                 second => "something else"
);

How to parse the file in order to load its contents in hash?

I'd recommend some of the CPAN modules for config files.
